    Congratulations to our new DG! It’s great to have a youthful face, with fresh perspective and hopefully more focused-energetic mindset to help the stagnating civil service into the 21st century.

    Best of luck in your new role, I’m sure you’ll do well.

    Two younger person, a good change from the old days. Now the whole political arena change in that same fashion will be so good. Hope to see a change in that direction in the next general election. Best of luck to you both younger leaders!
